P7 pupils from St John's Academy visited the Council Chambers on Tuesday 5 March to show councillors the work being done locally under the Show Racism the Red Card banner.
The event saw elected members and young people take part in Show Racism the Red Card workshops together, and they also got the chance to quiz Council staff, St Johnstone FC Manager Steve Lomas and player David Robertson, along with community coaches and members of the Red Card Education Team.
Perth & Kinross Council and St Johnstone FC work in close partnership to deliver regular Show Racism the Red Card events for local youngsters whilst wider campaign work locally also receives support from the Perth and Kinross branch of UNISON.
Community Safety Convener, Councillor Douglas Pover, who hosted the event, explained: "Here in Perth and Kinross we are at the forefront of promoting an anti-racism and anti-bigotry message to young people through the Show Racism the Red Card campaign.
"Today's event showcased the excellent work being done with our young people. Councillors were delighted to be able take part with the youngsters, who were as enthusiastic as ever.
"Racism and bigotry are never acceptable and Show Racism the Red Card gets that message across to people of all ages, and particularly our children and young people, through the medium of football."
Chair of the Council's Equality and Diversity member/officer working group, Councillor Archie MacLellan, co-hosted the day. He added: "I am delighted that we have again come together in close partnership with St Johnstone FC and Unison to continue this extremely valuable initiative.
“I would like to thank our partners for their unstinting support, and also the young people who came along today to take part."
